Grilled Vegetable Salad

Ingredients (for eight servings)
  • Fennel bulb, 1 medium-sized (cut in ½-inch slices)
  • Eggplant, 1 (cut in ½-inch slices)
  • Corn ear, 1 (shucked)
  • Zucchini, 1 small (cut lengthwise into ½-inch slices)
  • Red pepper, 1 (cut into half)
  • Yellow pepper, 1 (cut into half)
  • Jalapeño, 1 (roasted and peeled)
  • Cherry tomatoes, 1 cup (cut into half)
  • Onion, 1 medium-sized (cut into 13-inch slices)
  • Cilantro leaves, ⅓ cup
  • Cumin, 2 tsp. (ground)
  • Lemon juice, ½ cup
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
Procedure

Before you prepare the grill, toss the vegetables lightly in olive oil. In a hot grill, arrange the cut vegetables in a layer form. Turn the vegetables after a few minutes and make sure they are not burnt. Grill them for about 15 minutes or until the vegetables become soft and tender. Instead of grilling the vegetables, you can broil them lightly. When they are tender enough, remove the vegetables and let them cool down. Chop the vegetables coarsely.

In a mixer, combine lime juice, jalapeño, half of cilantro, and cumin. Blend the mixture for about 5 minutes, until it becomes smooth. Take a large bowl and mix together the grilled chopped vegetables, cilantro, cumin, tomatoes, and 2-3 spoons of olive oil. In this bowl, pour the blended mixture and mix properly by tossing. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve.
